HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - A popular bar and arcade in downtown Huntsville, and the store located under it, announced they will be closed for a few days because of a fire. Pints and Pixels is located on Clinton Avenue above UG White.
Both businesses posted to their Facebook pages (P&P & UG White) that there was a small fire Sunday night. Capt. Frank McKenzie with Huntsville Fire & Rescue tells WHNT News 19 two sprinklers were activated above the stove area.
The post from Pints and Pixels says the games are mostly okay, but there was a lot of water inside that caused damage. UG White managers say they are closed because of water and smoke damage.
Managers say it will take a few days to get cleaned up and get re-certified with the city, so both will be closed indefinitely, but they hope to be open within a week.
Clean up continues at UG White & Pints & Pixels downtown after a kitchen fire Sunday. #ServPro managers say the sprinkler system created water backup on all three floors; will take days to dry out @whnt pic.twitter.com/CevnQZvFof
